Propose innovative solutions to the challenge of providing training in the workplace using ICT, by offering a professional training process hinged on four components: Identify – Develop – Validate – Certify (Continuing Professional Education – CPA)
SILOgraphic is a remote training platform tested by around 30 businesses divided between the consortium’s six countries: France – Portugal – Spain – Romania – Italy – Sweden
The platform gives the professional the opportunity to develop his/her skills and supplies documentary resources at each step of the process.
Step 1: Identify – The professional choses the skills he/she would like or must acquire from the skills standards
Step 2: Develop – The professional acquires the skill through exercises and “How tos” (equivalent to classes)
Step 3: Validate – The professional demonstrates his/her skills by recording work in an e-portfolio
Step 4: Certify – The network of European experts certifies the professional’s skills: this recognition is valid throughout the EU.
The SILOgraphic budget amounts to 334,000 euros, part of which is financed by the European Union’s Leonardo Da Vinci fund.
